Sterling Global Financial, with US$10 billion in assets under management and offices in Nassau, Grand Cayman, London and Canada, has announced the appointment of Bahamian Timothy Maura to head corporate information technology (IT) for its Bahamas operations.
“We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Timothy Maura, a specialist who brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the private international wealth management sector,” said Stephen Tiller, president and chief operating officer. “Having worked for almost two decades as CEO and senior technician of Itech Bahamas Ltd., Tim’s practical knowledge, as well as superior communication skills combined with the ability to see the big picture, is what makes him an excellent addition to the Sterling Global team.”
Maura, who joined Sterling in June, specializes in corporate IT development with concentrations in firewall security, server/workstation installation and support, application software support, networking, wireless and fiber optic. A native of Nassau, 44-year-old Maura attended a top-tier boarding school in Connecticut prior to graduating from the College of Charleston, where he earned a bachelor of arts degree.
He holds several certifications, including CompTIA A+, MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional), MCSE (Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert) and CFOT (Certified Fiber Optic Technician).
“Sterling is an exciting company growing rapidly while remaining true to its expertise and core values, funding real estate projects and development through the investment funds managed by its growing team,” said Maura. “It’s an honor to be part of that dynamic team.”
Among its current projects is the massive $350 million Sterling Hurricane Hole mixed-use development that will double the size of the iconic marina and create a downtown for Paradise Island with dining, shops, a food store, professional office space and harborfront residences. Retail space in the first phase, scheduled for completion in late 2020, is 100 percent leased with limited retail space remaining in the second building.
Sterling Global Financial and its subsidiaries, including Sterling Advisory Services, is also launching redevelopment projects in two Family Islands, making it among the largest in the real estate funding and development space in the Caribbean and Bahamas region.
